Games Teachers Play (good ones)

October 3rd, 2012 by

Games Teachers Play - Book CoverI’m very excited and pleased to announce the release of my book “Games Teachers Play Before the Bell Rings” – a fun book that contains 10 games to stretch the imagination of those who work with children and youth… and to transform how we, as teachers, see the world.  The goal of the games is to bring the teacher new awareness into the art and power of their unique position and to enable them to speed along the road from “good” to “great”.

Until October 5th, you can download a FREE Kindle version of the book here.

After October 5th, it will still be available for the bargain price of $2.99.

Here is to teachers who are self-aware, conscious, and consciously making a difference!

Funny and Profound – Don’t Kill Creativity!

September 3rd, 2011 by

Here is a remarkable video from Sir Ken Robinson that was brought to my attention by a former teacher and mentor (thank you, Brad Hawkins, for this video, and thank you for the difference you have made in the lives of the thousands of children and youth that you’ve impacted and continue to impact to this day).

Yes, it’s 19 minutes long, but it’s highly entertaining and has a message that today’s education professionals need to hear.

What is wonderful is that, using Youth Development principles, this is a gap that is being filled by Out-of-School-Time professionals already.  How affirming!

Enjoy!
